Bioscope: biological microscope simulation
This is a biological microscope simulation resource for GCSE and A Level. It is a simulation of a real microscope that includes a large number of botanical and zoological microscope slides at a range of magnifications, accompanied by paper-based tasks.
This versatile software gives teachers the ability to search for slides and tasks using key words and includes microscope features such as graticule and stage scale. It can be used for whole class teaching via a whiteboard or data projector, or by individual students on PCs.
